    I'm building Hamptons(ish) style homes and I need some inspiration. I will be discussing with my IT in a few weeks but wanted to have some ideas first.

    I don't like cliche Hamptons and I've been told by agents I don't strictly need to stick to Hamptons, but keep it as an underlying theme.

    I'm thinking of some kind of hybrid between Hamptons/coastal chic/some contemporary elements.

    I've been scouring the internet for some inspiration, something that's mixed with Hamptons but not extremely laid-back and has some contemporary sophistication. Still having trouble finding something I like....

    Any links? Recommendations? Ideas? Things you love about Hamptons in a home?

    Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks all.

    Pretty much just shaker cabinetry - pretty in demand.

    Facade I think grey/white or dark blue...

    I like the 1st and 5th pics. And the last pic facade. I've seen the first pic before and saved it. Thanks

    What else would you say is a must have in Hamptons homes? I'm trying to get a balance of coastal relaxation with some sharper contrasting colour themes.


    I'm thinking possibly a rich blue, with gold theme for taps etc

    I like the blue, but it can be polarising to some. Grey is the safe bet.

    Needs to be done right.

    Search for glam hamptons or cringe worthy glamptons o_O

    Been all over Pinterest too mate. Once I nail the kitchen and bathroom designs/colours, the rest will fall into place. Alot of panelling, panelling and more panelling. I do like this Built in wine rack!

    And coffered ceiling: ignore the arrow.

    Re sackie, you know the story about the curious cat...:p


    Re Ermington I assume the buyers are very happy, sold them at the peak mate just before the slump.

    Ahh yes was going to mention also panelling.

    I was looking at similar design with my Modbury reno, but builder/bus partner quickly slapped me down.
    All that extra work, costs extra $$, pretty much all that extra detail was extra time and material which ultimately is extra $$
    Definitely can be worthwhile, agents/buyers love it, as you already know - make sure it all stacks up!

    Check out all of Anne Marie Russels stuff but that is probably more true Hamptons than modern.

    I do love that blue kitchen that @Bradie put up. Modern and classic at the same time but not OTT. I did a kitchen for my parents in the newish Laminex French Navy and it's a beautiful colour. I didn't do panelled doors due to budget

    Do throw in some statement colour like a black front door, some panelling (even some simple VJ). This is the one I did last year https://www.realestate.com.au/sold/property-house-wa-manning-132357642

    I agree it's a lot of work but can be achieved DIY. What I would suggest instead of doing lots of wainscotting is 1-2 feature walls (ie one in living, one behind master bed) of the style and it's just as effective but less work and less $$$

    Note how it's the same colour as the walls so it's more subtle but still very eye catching

    Why do you need to discuss with your IT? Are you getting a hamptons style router to go with your NBN?

    @Westminster Anne-Maree has an article in the Jan addition of Home Beautiful magazine of her Hamptons build/ppor. Looks nice, but its quite the traditional Hamptons style.

    The one you did last year i had another look and it really has subtle hints of Hamptons but nothing really overt.

    @Brady would you happen to have pictures of the entire house of that navy blue and gold Glamptons ? I searched the internet but couldn't find it..
